Sevilla: A Life-Changer!

The CIEE program in Sevilla takes place in a beautiful, renovated colonial home in a historic part of the city. Just the walk there is enchanting in itself. The program is extremely well administered, with staff from Spain, the U.S. and some from other parts of the world all very specialized in certain skills and working to make the student experience exceptional. There was a perfect amount of excursions and social activities to allow participants to see essential parts of southern Spain, but not so many that there wasn't time to travel independently. There were plenty of opportunities to meet locals through various social activities and exchanges, as well as a thorough orientation at the start of the program that paired a group of students with a local guide who showed them around the city and took them under their wing. Overall, an exceptional program in a location prime for Spanish language and culture acquisition. Bien hecho, CIEE!

Everything is super great but my teacher is perhaps the most boring lady I've ever met.

Great Experience If You Get Into The Community!

This was a great program that provided a lot of opportunities for students academically and socially. However, you get out of it what you put in: meeting Spaniards and getting involved in the community is something you have to make an effort to do. CIEE provides the opportunities, but expects its students to take the initiative. Overall, this program was very good academically and provided a lot of activities.

Seville

If you want a full cultural immersion experience then this is a great program. My language improved incredibly. It is also a very independent program.

It was an average program 10 years ago

Program average...experience meeting Spaniards was great.

Though I studied there 10 years ago, so these rating may not reflect the current situation.

I loved my host family, and I became very comfortable with the language, and I traveled a lot. All in all, it was a good time. The program isn't the best, though.
